Cthulhu cane head by askoi Cthulhu cane head by askoi
This is the head of my cane. I sculpted it in @ 2000, but I just recently repaired it and redid it a little. It's pretty sturdy; the original sculpt only chipped and cracked a little after being dropped several times on concrete, being used as a gaff hook, being used for caning, etc. His leatherwork and shaft texture were done by Jason Soles but are not really visible here. He has a no-skid rubber tip. He is otherwise made of unspeakable evil & win.

This WAS the cane I used day to day to get around. This item was among several things stolen from me on Jan 12 2012 in the city of Olympia WA.

There is only one of those (as mentioned in the description), and I need it to walk. I would not be particularly interested in replicating it, and would charge upwards of $300 US to do so.

Thanks.

Not really, then I could get in a lot of trouble for walking around with it. Concealed weapons laws and all....

Luckily that in Brazil we have no laws forbidding mellee weapons =D

...but for the bad side, all kinds of guns are hardly illegal...

I don't live in Brazil. It's my walking cane. I would potentially replicate it for about $300 US, but otherwise, it's not really something to even discuss.

Cheers.

I'm a huge Lovecraft fan and this is absolutely gorgeous. What is he sculpted from?
I also need to use a cane to get around and find it difficult to find interesting heads that are still functional.

Thanks.

In what's actually visible there, he's wood, heavy gauge armature wire, epoxy putty, acrylic medium, paint, and urethane sealer.

Catalyst (Jason Soles & I, that is) produced a few resin-headed canes - a demonic skull head, a rat skull head, and a simpler Cthulhu head - for several years but eventually dropped them as the kind of vending events we did changed.
